Pet Name: Ghlaghghee
I used to have no home. I was just a Wocky who would wander around the town and woods. I thought that was a good life. But it was a little lonely. If you’re never in one place for very long, it’s hard to make good friends.
I had seen my owner more than once before she adopted me. She has this way of attracting strays and other odd things. So there I was, playing with a ghoti in the river, and she came by and petted me.
“You’re fluffy!” she said. (And I am very, very fluffy.) And she snatched me up and took me home with her. Little did I know what was in store for me.
She let me keep my little ghoti friend from the river. She asked me my name.
“I don’t really have one,” I replied. “Or at least not one I can remember.”
“We’ll have to work on that.”
She led me out into a beautiful garden, where I was able to keep my little ghoti friend happy in a little stream. I was very happy knowing I’d be cared for here, but I was a little upset that my new brother and sister had names and I didn’t.
My owner sat next to me on the stream, and we watched my ghoti friend swim for a bit. She petted me softly. “You really are quite the fluffy one,” she said, stroking my tail. “That’s it!”
“What?” I asked.
“Your name! You’ll be called Fluffy!”
Never having a name before, I couldn’t argue with that. It seemed a perfectly reasonable name, after all.
She quickly went into a room and came out with a plate that she said could go on my door. “GHLAGHGHEE” was written in bright blue letters.
I started to try and pronounce it... and ended up choking a bit.
“Are you okay?” She patted my back.
“What’s that say?”
“Fluffy! Your name.”
“But... that’s not how you spell ‘fluffy’!” I couldn’t figure out what she was talking about.
“How else would you spell it?” She really did seem confused.
I didn’t know how to respond to that.
“Well, if ‘fish’ can be spelled g-h-o-t-i, then ‘fluffy’ can be spelled g-h-l-a-g-h-g-h-e-e.”
I thought about it for a minute, and decided then and there that I liked this person. We could get along quite well.
My new home was everything I expected and more! I have a sister -- a very bossy Tuskaninny who reads too much, and a brother, a Kiko who can call down lightning whenever he gets mad. (My sister and I try to avoid doing that.)
And now, I even have wings! Even if they’re more decorative than practical, they make me look elegant, don’t you think?
And I still have my little ghoti friend. It loves its new stream. It took my owner and me a few days to come up with a good name for it. But we decided if I’m a fluffy Wocky named “Ghlaghghee”, I can have a ghoti named “Fish”. It makes perfect sense.
